Techopedia Explains Server Intelligent Storage

SIS is a storage mechanism and architecture geared toward reducing storage requirements and intelligently managing the storage capacity of a server. It focuses on data deduplication and compression techniques that help keep overall storage requirements at a lower level. It also helps organizations plan and deploy storage infrastructure with scalability in perspective, where a server is equipped with multiple expansion slots and options. This helps organizations effectively manage existing storage, while retaining the server for a longer period of time.
